  • No. Even if I felt that I would be safe, home is not the place I would want to give birth.

  • No. I liked being away from home. People bringing me breakfast in bed, just me and the baby for 4 days. At home I'd feel like I needed to throw in a load of laundry or start dinner.

  • No. I like quiet when I give birth. My home is not quiet.

  • I plan on doing it when I am pregnant. LOL So, yes. And, there are less complications at home with a midwife than in the hospital statistically.

  • No thank you. I like the idea of having qualified staff there to take care of me and my baby. You never know when something can go wrong. That is why I like modern medicine and the conveniences of a sterile environment.

  • Probably not. I can't really think of a room in the house I'd want to give birth in.

  • Yes I would. I have always wanted to do a home birth and although I never had complications with my two children I always fear that durning the next one something might go wrong. So I stick with the comfort of knowing both my child and I will be taken care of at the hospital.
